Unique programs are also scheduled for the five other immersive “Verses” of DC FanDome. The WatchVerse area will host programming for DC’s television series such as “The Flash,” “Black Lightning,” “Batwoman,” “Pennyworth,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” “DC’s Stargirl” and “Doom Patrol,” as well as screenings of a Dwayne McDuffie documentary and an episode of “Static Shock.”
